This 18 month apprenticeship aims to allow Leeds health and care employees to develop their project management expertise, and achieve a recognised qualification in the field. 

Designed by programme partners Multiverse (who we also work with to deliver our Data Analyst Apprenticeship & People Leadership Apprenticeship)  the content of this Project Management course is delivered over 15-18 months, and provides access to 1:1 monthly sessions with your own individual coach, group content sessions with peers across the Leeds health and social care workforce, and membership to the Multiverse networking and welfare community.

During the apprenticeship, participants will learn the differences between various project methodologies, and when to call on each approach. They will also develop core knowledge and skills, including project planning, quality management, governance, risk management, and how to lead a project team.

All successful applicants will gain the Associate Project Manager Level 4 and the Project Management Qualification from the Association for Project Management (APM).

This is a great opportunity to not only join an industry leading programme that Multiverse are currently delivering to organisations such as the Metropolitan Police, the NHS and the Ministry of Justice, but to work and learn alongside colleagues from across the Leeds health and care workforce.

The cost of the apprenticeship is fully-funded by the UK Apprenticeship Levy, so there’s no charge to the participant, or the employer.
